Chuck Stodgers was "the greatest airplane pilot in the world," until he crashed. After the crash, he staggered into a cave in Broken Hills to escape the explosion. He was overwhelmed by the fumes, however, and fell asleep. He is a dusty, sleepy-looking man with clothes that look very, VERY old fashioned.
When the Chosen One explores a rock formation to the right of the mine entrance, he accidentally finds a hidden cave with a dusty, sleeping man wearing old-fashioned clothes inside. Chuck Stodgers, who has been asleep there for a long time, thanks to the unique effects of local fumes, is woken when the Chosen One approaches him. The Chosen One is given a chance to talk to him, and inform him of what year it is, sending him into a blind panic.
